Look what just swam in to Atlanta's Fernbank Museum of Natural History! The new interactive exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep provides a very thorough and engaging educational opportunity for guests of all ages.
Discover the relationship between whales and humans, from hunting to conservation efforts, at several stations throughout the exhibit. One of my favorite interactive components explored the many comparisons between a whale's body and our own.
Danger was mesmerized by the enormous whale skeletons, especially the display case full of real skulls!
Children are able to climb through a life-sized model of a whale's heart and play interactive games at several stations, making this exhibition an excellent opportunity to learn through play! Danger tried her hand at a whale's life game. She navigated her whale through the water, making sure it had plenty of food and air, while keeping it safe from capture.
Whales: Giants of the Deep is on display now through August 24, 2014. I highly recommend this exhibit for families with children of all ages. We learned quite a bit about whales in a fun and interesting way.
While you're there, make sure to visit NatureQuest (the indoor educational playground for children) as well as the other wonderful exhibitions at Fernbank Museum of Natural History.
